Highland Football League weekend review: Brora will take some stopping after 8-0 win



Brora Rangers will take some stopping if they are to not lift the Highland League again this season after a convincing 8-0 win over Turriff United. Zander Sutherland helped the Cattachs on their way to victory with a hat-trick.

Inverurie Locos bagged an impressive three points away to Wick Academy winning 6-3 in Caithness. A brace from David Ross helped the Harlaw Park men on their way to victory.

Formartine United maintained a 100% start to the season along with Inverurie and Brora after a 5-1 win away to Strathspey. Sam French scored a hat-trick and was also joined by a blistering strike from Craig McKeown and Paul Napier. Adam McLeod got a consolation for Brian Grant’s men.

Fraserburgh highlighted to the league that they can win honours after an 8-0 win away to Rothes. Courtney Cooper scored 4 and Scott Barbour got a hat-trick which was joined by Willie West. Following the game, Graeme Roy last night resigned from his post as manager.

Forres Mechanics picked up their 1st league win of the campaign in some style beating in-form Buckie Thistle 5-0. Goals from Scott Moore, Kris Duncan, Lee Fraser, Ross Archibald and Craig McGovern were enough for the Can-Cans to come out on top.

Lossiemouth and Deveronvale drew 1-1 at Grant Park. Lossie took the lead through Scott Dunn on 27 minutes who has now scored in 3 consecutive games. Martin Charlesworth levelled for Vale on the stroke of half time.

At the end, the Vale support made their opinions known to manager Charlie Charlesworth and he had this to say at the end “Some of the response I’m getting from the crowd is killing me, this club is in a redevelopment stage at the minute and I’m thinking long and hard about what I should do because I’m not going to sit in any dug-out and just get abuse from my own fans.”

Clachnacuddin got their 1st win of the new season after a 4-2 win over Keith. Goals from Martin Callum, David Watson, Daniel McLennan and Iain Penwright were enough for the Lilywhites to come out on top.

Meanwhile, Cove Rangers came back from Glasgow with a 9-1 win over Glasgow University whilst Fort William were on the wrong side of a 5-0 defeat away to Edinburgh City.
